Suzanne Hart's Family Sues Elevator Company After NYC Ad Executive Crushed To Death In Accident

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — The family of a New York City advertising executive who was crushed to death in an elevator accident in 2011 has sued the repair company.

The suit was filed by Suzanne Hart's father, Alex Hart, against Transel Elevator and Electric.

It alleges Transel caused her death because it failed to re-enable a safety circuit and disconnect a cable that bypassed the circuit.

The New York Post ( ) says the suit was filed last week. http://bit.ly/WxnD1K

The company declined to comment.

Hart was dragged between an elevator and a wall when the car started rising with the doors still open as she tried to get in.

Five elevator mechanics on duty that day were fired.
